Never having been to Malta before we didn't know what to expect on arrival. The Hotel stands proud just outside the centre of Valetta, with a great entrance. We checked in at reception being dealt with very efficently, and with the porter taking our bags to our room. We were booked into a Classic plus on the third floor and although we weren't expecting a sea view if we craned our neck we could just about see the harbour. Well equiped with flat screen TV, safe, tea/coffee tray, the room was air conditioned and with a great size bathroom, which although looking a little tired had a great shower. The hotel is in a great position for going into the centre of Valetta, the new cruise liner terminal or spreading your wings into Malta as the bus station is just over the road, but does not impinge on the hotel. The gardens are expansive with the swimming pool and pool bar being at the end of the walk through. There are great views over the harbour and can make a great viewing area for the fireworks which seemed to be a nightly occurance whilst we were there.
We stayed bed and breakfast, can't grumble about the breakfast as there was a great choice on the buffet and plenty of hot items available. I didn't expect the sparkling wine/champagne at breakfast but very nice surprise (difficult to get used to so early in the morning ;-) We stayed and had dinner on one night which was buffet night. Again plenty of it and of a good standard, we were on the Terrace, as we were for breakfast every day. The staff were friendly and very obliging, nothing being to much trouble. The hotel made a great location and just made us wish we had stayed for 10 days not 7. We are looking forward to going back and seeing more of Malta and the hotel in the near future.
